Who Is Caroline Wren, The Shadowy Trump Insider Behind DC Insurrection?

On the right is an image of Caroline Wren from an October 2018 Politico piece celebrating her birthday

As the stories about the January 6th DC insurrection keep coming out, and the public keeps inquiring about the people who may have orchestrated the event, the name Caroline Wren, a Trump insider and fundraiser, keeps popping up. Caroline Wren apparently played a very significant role in organizing Trump’s January 6th rally, which ultimately led to the infamous insurrection at the Capitol building. Like many political operatives in Washington, Wren maintains a low public profile, and is therefore relatively unknown to people outside Washington, DC. Politico however featured her birthday in October 2018, proving without a doubt, that she is a mover and shaker in DC political circles.

A January 30th ProPublica piece , which delved into people in Trump’s orbit who were intricately involved in the planning of his January 6th rally, has shed more light into shadowy Caroline Wren’s political activities, and importantly, established Wren as the central planner of the rally. Below is an excerpt from the ProPublica piece.

From what we can piece up from this ProPublica piece about Caroline Wren, she served as a deputy to Kimberly Guilfoyle at Trump Victory, a joint presidential fundraising committee during the 2020 campaign. Kimberly as you know, is Donald Trump Jr’s girlfriend. According to ProPublica, much of the planning for Trump’s January 6th rally was originally in the hands of one Cindy Chafian. Ms. Chafian was however abruptly pushed aside after a Publix Six Markets heiress, Julie Jenkins Fancelli, committed $300,000 to the event, on condition that Caroline Wren was made the main event planner. Heiress Fancelli essentially booted out Cindy Chafian for Caroline Wren, an issue that begs for further scrutiny by the mainstream media. Interestingly, right wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who is currently under investigation over his role in the insurrection, was also involved in the decision to ditch Cindy Chafian for Caroline Wren.

There’s also an interesting tidbit from this Twitter handle “The Warning Bell”, which shows Caroline Wren’s close ties to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and defense contractors. Senator Graham as you know, is a very close ally of former President Trump. As a matter of fact, a plausible argument can be made that it was Senator Graham, together with Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who gave birth to the “stop the steal” movement, given the way they egged Trump on to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential election immediately after it became apparent that Trump was headed for defeat. Did Caroline Wren’s ties to Lindsey Graham and defense contractors have anything to do with the strange insistence that she be the primary organizer of Trump’s January 6th rally? Is this why there were a lot of military undertones at the insurrection?

Bottom line folks, there is no question that the January 6th DC Insurrection was a carefully orchestrated conspiracy, even though it failed to achieve it’s ultimate goal of overthrowing the U.S. government. Where, as here, Caroline Wren appears to have been a key player in the organization and financing of the event that led to the insurrection, reasonable people will agree that the FBI needs to seriously interrogate her. There have been reports that there was a meeting at Trump’s DC hotel on the night of Jan 5th, featuring some of Trump’s most ardent supporters. Did Caroline Wren attend this meeting? Was this the final “huddle up” before the January 6th insurrection? Simply put folks, Caroline Wren must be confronted with these, and many other questions related to the DC insurrection. You can rest assured that unlike the short-attention-spanned mainstream media, Yours Truly, your trusted dog hound, will annoyingly dig into Caroline Wren’s role in DC insurrection, until we get to the bottom of it.

Sen Lindsey Graham Hints Republicans May Impeach VP Kamala Harris If They Take Over The House

Senator Lindsey Graham on Fox News Sunday (02/14/2021)

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appeared on Fox News Sunday on February 14th 2021 to talk about former President Trump’s acquittal by the U.S. Senate, which happened the preceding Saturday. Unsurprisingly, Sen Graham, second only to Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) as the staunchest Trumpers in the Senate, excused Trump’s conduct at his appearance on Fox News Sunday. Sen Graham however went a step further and told host Chris Wallace what he really came there to announce, and that is, should Republicans take back the House in 2022, they should immediately impeach VP Kamala Harris as payback for Trump’s latest impeachment.

Senator Graham said, I condemn what happened on January the 6th, but the process they[House Democrats] used to impeach this president[Trump] was an affront to rule of law…..We’ve opened pandora’s box to future presidents and if you use this model, I don’t know how Kamala Harris doesn’t get impeached if the Republicans take over the House, because she actually bailed out rioters, and one of the rioters went back to the streets and broke somebody’s head open. So we’ve opened pandora’s box and I’m sad for the country.” The full segment of Senator Graham’s interview is available here, but the relevant clip is below

Make no mistake about it, Senator Graham did not go on Fox News Sunday to throw out hypotheticals about future impeachments. He went there to instruct Republicans that if they take over the House in 2022, they must immediately initiate impeachment proceedings against VP Kamala Harris, to avenge his idol Trump. Sadly, this is what this once respected Senator from South Carolina has devolved to–an unabashed lackey for Trump. The same is true for Senator Ted Cruz, and God only knows what former President Trump has on them

Bottom line folks, Yours Truly has repeatedly stated that Trump did not do all the damage to this country during his presidency by himself. At every turn, he benefited from willing abettors like Senators Graham, Ted Cruz and numerous other members of Congress.

Where, as here, Sen Graham throws out hints about a possible impeachment of VP Kamala Harris, the mainstream media and politicos in Washington should interpret it for what it is–a directive from Trump through his trusted lieutenant Lindsey Graham, for House Republicans to impeach Kamala Harris at their earliest opportunity, as payback Trump’s second impeachment. Simply put, the mainstream media and Washington politicos should quit being “surprised” by the actions of Senators Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz, and start treating their pronouncements about Trump, as direct instructions from him.

Ivana Trump Recruited Schoolgirls For Epstein?

Jeffrey Epstein and Ivana Trump

Whitney Webb, an independent journalist best known for her work trying to expose Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex enterprise, recently made some very explosive allegations in a YouTube interview chief among them, that Trump’s ex wife Ivana trump (Ivanka’s mother) worked with Ghislaine Maxwell to recruit underage school girls in the New York area into Epstein’s child sex operation. This and other explosive allegations in the YouTube interview are based on a phone call Whitney Webb recently had with Maria Farmer, one of Epstein’s victims in the 1990s.

Webb specifically said regarding Ivana Trump(video at 4:40); “When she[Maria Farmer] told the FBI in 1996, she said the Clintons were part of it. She also said Donald Trump was part of it. One of the reasons she said that is because Ivana Trump, she said, was with Ghislaine Maxwell when she would go out to recruit girls for Epstein. It was her[Ghislaine] and Ivana Trump, Trump’s ex wife. They would go out together all the time and pick up these 12 year old girls in school uniforms and braces, exchange information with them and the next day they would be in Epstein’s office. She[Farmer] saw between 5 and 10 different girls every day go into Epstein’s office the whole two years she was there. Every day. This is in the 90s. So much of what we know from the other victims is after 2000. The FBI knew this then and they didn’t act and that’s why all those other victims exist. It’s just disgusting.”

Some of the bombshell allegations Whitney Webb makes in this interview are already fairly well circulated among the general public so Yours Truly will just mention them in passing while focusing more on the “new” and frankly more interesting bombshells (Ivana Trump being one of them). Whitney Webb for example says the Clintons were implicated and that the FBI covered up Epstein’s illicit conduct in the 1990s, claims that have been made repeatedly ever since the Epstein scandal broke.

Another interesting bombshell Whitney Webb dropped on the interview is that Victoria’s Secret’s Leslie Wexner and his wife Abigail were the masterminds behind Epstein’s child sex trafficking operation(see video at 8:00). According to Webb, young school girls would be lured into Epstein’s operation under the guise that they were being groomed to be Victoria’s Secret Models. If true, the billionaire Wexners could face very serious criminal conspiracy charges.

As for Vicky Ward, the journalist much celebrated for her Epstein pieces most notably her 2003 Vanity Fair piece, Whitney Webb says not so fast(see video at 12:00). According to Webb, Maria Farmer gave Vicky Ward details about Epstein’s child sex trafficking operation but Ward left them out of her bombshell Vanity Fair piece. As if that was not enough, Ward who was apparently an acquaintance of Ghislaine Maxwell, told Ghislaine that Maria Farmer talked to the FBI about her—essentially ratted out her source. Vicky Ward endangered Maria Farmer’s life so much that she went into hiding. Farmer apparently referred to Vicky Ward as a “monster”, according to Whitney Webb.

Farmer also told Whitney Webb that she fears some of the children involved in Epstein’s Florida operation may have been killed because out of some 500 children only about 30 of them came forward and the rest cannot be found(video at 21:30). She added that some of these children were really young(pre-teen). Importantly, Farmer said that Epstein’s legal team which included Alan Dershowitz, knew all the names of the missing children .

Whitney Webb also talked about a January 2001 article on the Evening Standard (U.K) that has since been scrapped from the internet, which said Epstein’s money came from his business links to three people–Leslie Wexner, Donald Trump and Bill Gates. Webb argues that nobody pushed back on this article(by one Nigel Russert) because back then(2001), Epstein was not a controversial figure(see video at 35:30). Webb also slammed as a total lie New York Times’ recent reporting that Bill Gates first met Epstein in 2011.

Farmer also told Webb that Epstein and people in his circle were extreme White Supremacists and she regularly overheard them speaking about other races, especially Blacks, in the most disgusting way(see video at 37:25). She said Epstein and his pals refused to go anywhere they thought there would be too many people of African descent.

Webb concluded by tying the entire Epstein scandal into a global intelligence operation involving Israel which Yours Truly will deliberately ignore because we will never get to the bottom of it(managing expectations). There are however some bombshell allegations that we could easily get answers to for example, whether Ivana Trump really helped Ghislaine Maxwell recruit young girls for Epstein, the missing 500 children who Dershowitz allegedly knows about, whether Vicky Ward(now at CNN) really ratted out Maria Farmer to Ghislaine Maxwell, whether Bill Gates knew Epstein in 2001 as opposed to 2011, whether Trump financed Epstein(another excuse for his tax returns), the Wexners’ involvement with Epstein, why the mainstream media refuses to act on stories by Maria Farmer and others, just to mention but a few.

Bottom line folks, as Yours Truly has repeatedly stated regarding Epstein’s stories, sunlight is the best disinfectant. It appears the more efforts are made to cover up Epstein’s child sex trafficking operation, the more bombshell revelations come up, the latest clearly being Ivana Trump. It will be interesting to hear what Ivana Trump says regarding these troubling allegations, assuming the mainstream media will be courageous enough to ask her. What will CNN do with Vicky Ward given the troubling revelations about her? Hmm–as Trump famously says, “We’ll see what happens.”

Lindsey Graham’s Potential Dem Challenger

A South Carolina Democrat, Jaime Harrison, has launched an exploratory committee to run for the South Carolina U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator Lindsey Graham. As you know, Lindsey Graham is one of the 22 Republican Senators up for reelection in 2020.

It cannot be left unsaid that Lindsey Graham remains very popular in South Carolina and is heavily favored by pollsters to win reelection in 2020. That however was true for Senator Ted Cruz when Beto O’Rourke declared his candidacy against him yet as we now know the Cruz-Beto race went down to the wire.

Bottom line, the lesson for Democrats from the Cruz-Beto contest is never to cede any ground to Republicans based on initial unfavorable polls. If and when Jaime Harrison officially declares his candidacy(assuming no other Dem declares) the DNC must fully throw it’s weight behind his candidacy and help him fight vigorously against incumbent Lindsey Graham. Simply put there’s great enthusiasm among grassroots Democrats to knock off Trump’s Senate enablers Susan Collins, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and John Cornyn in 2020.

Lindsey Graham’s Impeachment Hypocrisy

CNN’s Inside Politics has uncovered a 1999 video showing then Rep Lindsey Graham arguing for then President Clinton’s impeachment because as chief law enforcement officer, he had not only lied, but also encouraged others to lie for him. Essentially then Rep Graham was saying that by encouraging others to lie for him, Clinton(a Democrat) had obstructed justice and thus needed to be impeached. You will notice that President Trump(a Republican) is currently facing the exact, if not worse accusations, yet Sen Lindsey Graham is now against impeaching Trump.

https://youtu.be/GaBBsvuCbU4

Then Rep Graham specifically said, “He[Clinton] is the chief law enforcement officer in the land. He encouraged people to lie for him. He lied. I think he obstructed justice and I think there’s a compelling case that he has in fact engaged in conduct that would be better for him to leave office than to stay in office.”

Bottom line, Sen Lindsey Graham is up for reelection in 2020 and all indications are that he will cruise to victory. However if Democrats proceed with impeachment proceedings against Trump and expose Trump to have engaged in the same conduct Lindsey Graham wanted Clinton impeached for, the shameful hypocrisy might create an opening for Graham’s 2020 Dem challenger.

McConnell, Graham Impeachment Hypocrisy

In case you missed it, CNN recently dug up video footage(1999) of GOP Senators Mitch McConnell(KY), Lindsey Graham(SC), and Chuck Grassley(IA) explaining their reasons for supporting President Bill Clinton’s impeachment. Listening to the explanations given by Senators McConnell, Graham and Grassley in support of Clinton’s impeachment in 1999 and considering the fact that all of them are now staunch defenders, even abetters of President Trump who is accused of doing far worse, it is hard to avoid the shocking hypocrisy displayed by these three senior U.S. Senators.

Senator Mitch McConnell for example said on February 10, 1999, “The problem is lying under oath and obstructing justice. The subject matter[Monica Lewinsky] is not what is significant here. It is lying under oath and obstructing justice.”

Senator Lindsey Graham said on January 16, 1999, “The point I’m trying to make is you don’t even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic. Impeachment is not about punishment, impeachment is about cleansing the office.”

Senator Chuck Grassley said on January 9, 1999, “We are miraculously transformed from politicians to people who leave their Republican and Democrat labels at the door. We’re there to seek the truth and to find out whether the president is guilty or not guilty, and no stone should be left unturned to make that determination.”

From what we have seen so far, I think it is fair to conclude that Mitch McConnell will never vote to impeach Trump even if evidence was produced proving that Trump obstructed and is still obstructing justice. It is also fair to conclude that Senator Graham will never vote to impeach Trump without a conviction in an effort to “cleanse the office” even if a mountain of evidence was presented showing Trump has defiled/is still defiling the office. As for Senator Grassley, it is likewise fair to conclude that he will never shed his Republican label and vote to impeach Trump even if a determination was made that he was guilty of a crime.

Bottom line, it is not uncommon for politicians from both sides of the aisle to be caught in hypocritical stances. The Trump presidency however has brought political hypocrisy to a whole new alarming level. Simply put, no self-respecting individual who took issue with President Clinton’s lying and obstruction of justice would ever fervently defend Trump, a far worse and serial offender, as Senators Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and Chuck Grassley have. It is such sickening hypocrisy that turns a lot of young impressionable people away from politics–a sad state of affairs indeed.

Lindsey Graham Inciting Trump To Fire Sessions

Senator Lindsey Graham(R-SC)

Now that Trump has been implicated in criminal conduct by the Michael Cohen plea deal and is in danger of further exposure from the Paul Manafort case and a grant of immunity to his former chief accountant Allen Weisselberg, it appears the new GOP protective stance is to incite him to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a move that could end Mueller probe altogether.


Chief among his inciters is U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, who was once regarded as a reasonable moderate and a check to Trump’s unconventional presidency. It appears according to media reports however that Sen Graham has done a complete about face and is now basically inciting Trump to fire Sessions in an effort to insulate Trump from the gathering storm that is the Mueller probe. So you ask “Wait @emolclause, how is Sen Graham inciting Trump?” Here’s why.

It is well known that Trump is a major consumer of cable TV news. Back in 2017 Sen Graham went on a cable TV show and said there would be “holy hell to pay” if Trump fired Sessions. His statements were correctly characterized by the mainstream media as a stern message to Trump to not even think about firing Sessions. The same Sen Graham has now taken to cable TV news this time saying Trump has a right to install a favorable attorney general. Sen Graham told reporters recently:”The president’s entitled to an attorney general he has faith in, somebody that’s qualified for the job, and I think there will come a time, sooner rather than later, where it will be time to have a new face and a fresh voice at the Department of Justice.”

There is no other way to interpret Senator Graham’s recent comments regarding AG Jeff Sessions other than he(Sen Graham) is sending a message to Trump that there will no longer be “holy hell to pay” if Trump fired Sessions–essentially inciting him to do so. Sen Graham’s surprise 180 degrees flip was best captured by this tweet by prominent women empowerment activist Amy Siskind


It appears at every turn when the public has gotten close to finding out the truth about Trump’s very questionable conduct with Russians, congressional Republicans have always stepped in to protect him and Sen Lindsey Graham appears to be the latest. As Yours Truly has repeatedly stated, and the Washington Post now agrees, Trump is not necessarily the problem but rather his abetting congressional Republicans like Sen Lindsey Graham.


Bottom line Senate Democrats and the mainstream media must confront Sen Lindsey Graham about his strange about-face regarding AG Jeff Sessions. Yours Truly wishes someone would soon pose Amy Siskind’s question to Sen Graham–“What does Putin have on you Senator Graham”?
